Ok Thank You. I will check with the local 3M shop here see if they also have started selling/sticking this CF vinyl.

Guys, Any place in Banaglore where this can be done? The 3M centers in Bangalore, I think, are service centers alone.

You can call and check with the 3M car care center in Andheri or Borivali. There's also one in Navi Mumbai.

Details on our t-BHP directory thread or on 3M's facebook page.

Hi EKZ,

Apologies for the delayed reply. I believe you can get a good job done
for around 2.5k for the bonnet.

Cheers,
Ayyappan

Hi Shanz,

Looks neat.

The finish is cooler than i expected and saw in previous pics. Those looks close to real CF Hoods.

Nice Work mate.

I am shocked to see the rates of 3M sheet posted here by members. Today I casually visited a nearby sticker shop to get some white vinyl for the number plate. I found that he had a lot of CF textured vinyl with him. He quoted the rates as Rs. 50/sft and was willing to give any quantity right from a square feet. The sheet looked and felt good too. But looking at the 3M rates, I am shocked. Is there so much of a quality difference? Isnt 250-300 per square feet utterly expensive? You can get a bonnet paintjob for around 3-4k rather than spending on a sticker. Given a square feet at Rs 50, I would not mind getting it on my hood, as around 20sft costs Rs. 1000. But in this regard, I feel 3M is very expensive. Planning to buy some from this guy for small scale applications.

3M car care in HSR bangalore said they don't do carbon vinyl work.
Also I am looking for "CA-5429 Semi-Gloss Red". Doesn't look like this color is readily available.

When was this? They have started doing the CF vinyl work now. Look at the 3M HSR thread. People have already got it done.
